Oh, dear reader, what a marvellous long weekend the past three days have been! Full of watercolour painting and catching up on NPR’s Ted Radio Hour, dog walks with Millie (remember Millie?) and warm breezes that carried the scent of magnolia blossoms. It was lovely. Especially lovely on Saturday afternoon when David and I attended TWeet and Savoury, a Twitter-organised event that’s all about bringing people together and making food social. Tucked away in a fab little garage turned foodie lair in the middle of town, a group of us gathered, armed with savoury treats, bottles of wine, and decadent desserts. I guess it was kind of like a potluck, only way more chic. (I mean, there was bunting and homemade focaccia. Très chic, non?)
It was a really terrific afternoon full of new flavours and new friends– like that beautiful tomcat above!– and trust when I say that these pictures are doing it no justice at all (between this event and the pizza party last week, I’m realising how difficult it is to snap pictures whilst balancing a plate of food in one hand and a glass of wine in the other). No matter the quality of my artistic representation, I’m ever so grateful for everyone who organised the afternoon (thanks, guys!) and want to bear hug whoever got stuck doing the dishes (thanks, whoever you are!). It was a totally awesome afternoon and I’m already looking forward to the next one!
Speaking of the next one, as Laura Goode says in her excellent post, you don’t need to be an expert chef to attend Tweet and Savoury. If I can go and prepare food without accidentally poisoning anyone, you probably can too, so follow TWeet and Savoury on Twitter and look out for their next event. In the meantime, you need to decide, are you sweet, or are you savoury? It’s an important question. Decide wisely.
